Today’s Special Speaker: Chris Gardner

Today at our annual Awards Ceremony for work, they played the trailer to Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith. Then, they introduced the man who inspired the true story behind the movie, Chris Gardner! He was funny, engaging and inspiring. He told us to follow our dreams and never give up on them. He talked of faith in God, a devotion to family and an iron work ethic.

  1. Heard Chris Gardner speak a couple years ago … a wonderful talk, like you described. He is definately an inspiration. Read his book too … a little rough in parts content-wise, but the message is equally as good.
